The Honest Kitchen is the first human grade dehydrated food for pets since 2002. What many pet owners do not know is that there are a thousand or more pet food brands in the market that could be labeled as "Feed Grade".
Feed Grade pet food usually uses ingredients that just meet the basic standards for livestock feed. Unlike Human Grade pet food, the ingredients used meets the same strict standards the FDA sets for human food.
The facility that the Human Grade pet food is prepared on is different too. Human food facility always has higher food quality and safety control. There is a facility that could be making multiple different Feed Grade pet food brands and usually, they will use the same commodity ingredient source.
The Honest Kitchen also uses the same quality ingredients found in everyday food eaten by us. However, for Feed Grade pet food, ingredients may include by-products, supermarket waste, feathers and "4D" meats (dying, dead, diseased or disabled).
